Genesis "We Can't Dance" (Virgin ©1991 - 262 082)
Genesis "We Can't Dance"
Tony Banks used a lot the Korg WS on this album (jointly with a Roland JD-800 and an Ensoniq VFX). He also used these synths - among others - during the "The Way We Walk"  tour (he replaced the VFX by a SD-1). You can hear the  RAM3 21 "Analog Strings"  Performance as a soft pad during the "Fading Lights" (Track 12) song beginning:

Middle part of this long progressive song includes a large synth solo when you can recognize the ROM 04 "Mini Lead"  slightly modified Performance:

Genesis "The Way We Walk"
As mentioned above, Tony Banks included a Korg WS in his set during the "The Way We Walk" tour. There are several examples that we could mention here, but one of my prefered is the pad entry during the "Firth Of Fifth" Mike Rutherford's guitar solo from the "Old Medley" (Track 1) song. You can hear here all the Korg WS powerful when it is placed in a mix:
